Meet “Poppy”

Hi there.. happy Sunday everyone.
So here is my finished card using cute “Circus Poppy”. If you have missed yesterday’s posting, you might want to check eventually? I show there how I have created the background for this image.

For those of you who took time to watch it Smile see what I mean how it does pull the colors together even if you pick a darker pen? I know it is at first really scary. It took me a while to go for it. I would mostly use the Slate Grey or just any grey but now I tent to go for the turquoise or some other darker ones.
However.. if you colored your image already muted of course it does not work than. It’s just with the style iam going at this moment that I have the high contrasts all over her clothing.

Ps. Sorry to those of you who came especially to see the Video for my bag tutorial. It is still in the making. We have to split it up in 3 sections. This you tube stuff takes us forever. Not sure if it is worth for me to keep continuing with it. Yesterdays short video took “US” at least 3 hours.. not counting the time it took just uploading to the hard drive. I will see…

Einfach toll ist die Karte geworden!! Claudia, bitte bitte beantworte meine Frage ob ich genau so mit meine DERWENT-Stifte machen kann. Meine mailadresse steht im Blog. Ich habe bei Nicole einen riesen Koffer voller Promarkers gewonnen, habe bis jetzt nur erwent benuetzt und habe wirklich keine Ahnung ob ich mit den Marker etwas anfangen kann, sehr spannend!!

Liebe Gruesse uit Nederland, Irene
